Leg workout and cardio
I thought I’d share a leg workout and cardio session with you. I did it last week, but for once I’ve got some pictures from the gym 😀 It’s so hard to take pictures there now, and it sucks because I wanna share my workouts with you, and what better way than pictures? First of all I’m going when it’s super crowded since I’m working normal office hours now. Second, loooots of people are going to the gym at this time since many realized summer is here and they wanna feel and look their best!
Is it just me, or is it harder to find the motivation to gym in summer? It’s so hot out lately that everything makes me absolutely exhausted! I’m allowing myself 2 days off the gym during the weekdays so I only have 3 days when I have to drag myself to the gym after I get home from work. Phew! Weekends are sacred, haha I LOVE my weekend workouts. I have lots of time and energy, and a bit more space.
Also there are always other things you wanna do in summer. The long days with daylight until late. Lots of fun plans during the evenings and weekends that might seem more appealing than sweating in the gym. I try to “force” myself to go anyway, I feel so much better after. I also know I need to stick to my routines as much as possible, that’s when I feel the best.
Leg workout and cardio:
- Hack squats: 3 x 12
- Leg extensions: 4 x 16
- Seated leg press (both legs, single leg, single leg): 3 x 10
- Glute kickback machine: 4 x 15
- Lower back extensions machine, focus on glutes and hammies: 2 x 20
When it comes to the cardio, all treadmills were taken of course. But we found a new machine that was way better! My friend named it “the death trap” lol. We did shuffles, intervals, and low “sledge pushes”, and it was SO hard! Loved trying something new, and it felt even worse than normal intervals on a treadmill haha.
Hope you’re having a great week, tomorrow it’s FRIDAY! 🙂
